1957 FRONT END, NICELY BUILT 400CI SMALL BLOCK, VERY CLEAN CHEVY PICKUP, A/C
Who doesn't like a Chevy task force era truck? They've got a ton of personality, they're super popular at car shows, and they look like they're raring to go even when they're parked. This orange 1956 Chevy 3100 has all of the charm and style with a ton of power and some nice convenience items...sounds good to us!
Orange certainly wasn't a factory color for 1956, but you have to admit it looks great here. The paint job was done a few years ago and it's holding up great with a ton of gloss and depth. You'll notice the face isn't quite right; it's the even more photogenic grille, hood and fenders from a '57. All of the chrome is new and shines beautifully. This is a deluxe cab, so it not only has the wraparound windshield but also the rear window, too. It's a great update from the "five window" cabs of the previous generation, and it's a TON of glass to see out of. Out back you'll find a smoothed tailgate with an oversized bow tie and a whimsical Huckleberry Hound logo, which is a tribute to this Chevy's nickname "Huck." The bed is oak and stainless, and it looks great. The lights and lenses are beautiful, and what trim there was from the factory has been shaved. This truck stands out!
Inside you'll sit on a 90's cloth C/K bench seat that's exponentially more comfortable than the stock vinyl slab. The dash was properly painted to match the exterior, as were the doors and the rest of the interior. There's gray carpet on the floor and a gray upholstered headliner above. Aluminum inserts on the doors match the billet gauge cluster filled with Auto Meter gauges. A woodgrain Grant GT wheel is bolted to a newer tilt steering column for a far more modern feel than the stock tiller. A big tach is dead center on the dash while an AM/FM/cassette deck and the vents and controls for the A/C are on the front. It's a great place to be.
Pop the hood and check out the 406 cubic inch small block inside. It's full of good stuff from top to bottom. Keith Black pistons swing from heavy duty 5.7 rods while iron heads fortified with 2.02/1.60 stainless valves sit atop. Roller tip rockers get their marching orders from the Edelbrock cam within as the fuel and air intake is left to a Holley Street Avenger carb and a Weiand dual plane intake. An Accel HEI ignition handles the spark while long tube Headman Hedders carry away spent gasses. You'll also find cool custom inner fender panels, billet valve covers and a matching air cleaner, and an aluminum radiator. You could get a small block motor in 1956, but it certainly didn't run or look this good. You'll also find power steering and power brakes with front discs, so you know it's going to drive a bunch better than new. The exhaust is 3 inches in diameter with a pair of Flowmaster mufflers and an H crossover. Power routes back through a rebuilt TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and on to a-12 bolt rear with 3.08 gears for cruising. Chevy 15-inch Rally wheels hold a set of 255/70/15 Grand Am Radial GT tires, and there's a matching spare held in the bed.
